Inexpensive Drum Sets for the Beginner

It's not a parent's first choice in musical instruments, but if might be your kid's choice, so before you cave in, check out some of the less expensive drum sets available this holiday season.

Don't spend an extraordinary amount of money on a drums if you don't think your child is serious. For the 3 to 10 year old, mass discount retailers offer drum sets for as little as $150.00. If your child is older, these box stores have larger sets that will accommodate the junior player. However, these sets are not going to withstand the brutal beating they're sure to take like a set made by a reputable drum maker. Therefore, shop the music stores and music websites. Musicians Friend has a strong reputation within the music community, and their prices are just as good as a mass retailer.

In fact, Pulse offers a beginner drum set for only $80.00 through ! Certainly not Tommy Lee quality, but this is a good buy for the child exploring drums as the musical instrument of choice. Unlike a toy drum set, this kit will hold up to the enthusiastic pounding of a beginner. If the child is older, and more serious about this commitment, you might want to invest in something a little more durable. Pulse offers junior sets for $200.00. These are still smaller than standard, so they should be easy to play, and take up a whole lot less room in your house.

Drums are the least popular instrument with most parents because they're noisy, but it doesn't make sense to discourage a child who wishes to explore music in any form. Music is a great way to develop spacial skills and mathematical theory. It's also the best and most positive way for a child to express himself, so don't discount the drum set. Give it a try, and if you're budget allows it, there are always electronic sets that can be plugged into headphones.
